POPES OF CHILLITOWN
ska / punk / Dub
London based Popes of Chillitown are impossible to tie down and contain enough energy to power a small city. Their progressive ska songs take you on journeys through punk, two-tone, rock, hip-hop, reggae, drum & bass, dub, metal and more. With countless top notch liveshows in the UK and Europe the Popes have build themselves quite a loyal fanbase. Their 2018 “Work Hard, Play Hard, See You in The Graveyard” album only highlighted the level of songwriting that this band is at and immediately gave them a broader range of attention. Household band at El Topo Goes Loco, thrashing Groezrock stages in 2019 and playing hard to get for our Skalloween Fest for years, but here they finally are, ready to play hard!
ska / circuspunk
Balancing between circuspunk, ska, klezmer, polka and much much more, De Stokers definitely are the perfect band to join the line-up of our little festival, which has always been a bit of a circus, right? When listening to this unique Amsterdam outfit, it’s easy to notice the connection with De Hardheid, who headlined Skalloween a few years ago. For some reason De Stokers hardly play in Belgium, so we bundled our courage to kindly ask these manic, melancholic, world music punx to travel to Aalst, and they very willingly said yes! Time to dance, drink, sing & sweat!
